Cubiio – engrave everything with this desktop laser

Laser engraving is cool but most people don’t have a laser just sitting around in their house, ready to leave its mark on their handicrafts and foods. Well that was until now. The Cubiio is the consumer grade laser that allows you to engrave anything.

This little box laser sits on a tripod. You just set your item in front of it and it does all the rest. The laser moves to recreate the design you choose (or designed yourself) in order to brand or mark your product. It works on a variety of surfaces including wood, paper, fabric, metal, and even some food.

This innovation comes with some basic safety measures such as googles and a motion detector that will shut the machine down as soon as it is moved. Of course, this is still a laser so it’s not recommended for children. It’s currently on Kickstarter but has met its goals. You can preorder one for $379.

Donyae’s love for technology is based on a need to survive our future robotic overlords. Know thy enemy as you know yourself. But since even odds are on the zombie future, she has also learned how to prepare squirrel. You can find her on Facebook until the robots – or zombies – rise up.
